Keto strawberry muffins are easy, healthy almond flour muffins with only 3.9 grams of net carbs per muffin. Plus, they are gluten-free and dairy-free.


If you’ve been following Sweetashoney for a while, you know how much I love baking. It is probably my French roots, French people love baking or at least eating baked goods. So, here I am back with another keto baking recipe that tastes amazing.

Keto Strawberry muffins – almond flour muffins

Almond flour is the most delicious keto flour to create moist muffins and cakes. It contains very few carbs and a lot of fiber that makes it very fulfilling.


Let’s see how easy you can make these cute low-carb muffins. All you need are 7 simple ingredients.

  • Eggs – I used large eggs.
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener of your choice – I love Monk fruit crystal but erythritol and xylitol, in the same amount works in this recipe. Read my keto sweetener guide to find out which are my 4 preferred sweeteners!
  • Coconut oil – or melted butter if you prefer, I love dairy-free baking.
  • Baking powder – or half the amount of baking soda if preferred.
  • Diced strawberries – I used fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries would have worked well too. First, defrost the strawberries, chop and discard the juice. Frozen strawberries add lots of juice that soften the muffin batter too much. Always defrost before use.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – almond milk is the best milk on the keto diet. It doesn’t contain lactose, the natural sugar from milk.  You can also use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in this recipe. It has no sugar and adds a lovely vanilla flavor to the keto strawberry muffins.

To see how to make this recipe from a different perspective, watch my web story: making the keto strawberry muffins!

When to eat your keto strawberry muffins?

You may wonder when it is appropriate to sneak these 3.9 grams of net carbs into your day? I recommend three options:

  • Breakfast – this is a very fulfilling muffin delicious with a large almond milk latte. I recommend a large dollop of unsweetened coconut yogurt or whipped cream on top if you are really hungry.
  • Snack – if you crave sweets, this will fix your sweet tooth in the middle of the day and keep you full until dinner.
  • Post-workout – these muffins contain 5 grams of protein, which is great to reload your muscle mass while enjoying a sugar-free muffin.


Healthy strawberry muffins – gluten-free + paleo

These keto strawberry muffins definitely tick all the diet requirements. Almond flour is gluten-free, which means that they are also delicious gluten-free strawberry muffins.

I recommend checking the ingredient list of your baking powder if you are gluten intolerant. Some may contain added gluten. Otherwise, use half amount of baking soda.


How to store your muffins?

It might take you a while to eat 12 of these paleo strawberry muffins. Great news, they freeze perfectly well.

First, place the muffins into a ziplock bag or airtight container. I recommend freezing the muffins without paper cups.

Next, freeze for up to 3 months. Finally, defrost at room temperature the day before. You can rewarm your keto strawberry muffins into the oven or toaster.

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a 12-hole muffin pan with muffin paper or grease with an oil spray if preferred. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar-free sweetener of your choice, unsweetened almond milk, and melted coconut oil. Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. If you are using cold eggs straight out of the fridge, they will solidify the coconut oil creating oil lumps. Otherwise, use butter to prevent this from happening.
  • Stir in baking powder and almond flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring between to gently incorporate the flour to avoid lumps.
  • Stir in the diced strawberry, if you use frozen strawberries, make sure you defrost them. This eliminates any juice to prevent the muffin batter from getting overly moist.
  • Transfer the muffin batter evenly into the 12-muffin case. I used a mechanical ice cream scoop to be accurate and ensure that each muffin has the same size (and so the same amount of carbs per serving).
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins comes out clean or with few to no crumbs on it.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan, then gently transfer onto a cooling rack and cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour before eating. Be patient. They get the best texture at room temperature.


  • Store in an airtight muffin box for up to 4 days at room temperature.
  • Can be frozen in airtight ziplock bags, preferably without the paper cup. Defrost the day before at room temperature. Can be toasted or rewarmed in an oven at 100°C/210°F.

How to serve your muffins?

  • Eat plain or top with unsweetened whipped coconut cream (or heavy cream) or unsweetened coconut yogurt.

    These muffins are on my automatic remake mental list! They are that great. I make them in a mini-muffin tin, so the texture is spot on and not too moist. I add cinnamon, chopped pecans, sprinkle of ginger, and salt. They are great plain! Mine cook in 16 min and get nicely browned

  2. can i substitute vegetable oil for coconut oil? if so, does it still count as being “keto”? I want to make these for my daughter

  3. 5 stars
    Since beginning a journey with diabetes, I’ve tried many recipes.Some disappointed me, some I threw in trash, but this was the most satisfying I’ve tried. I may try the same basic recipe using blue berries, or apple cinnamon, or chocolate chips. Thank you.

  4. Bonjour,

    Je n’ai que de la poudre d’amande. Est-ce que je peux l’utiliser en remplacement de la farine d’amande ?
    Merci par avance de votre retour.
    Dans cette attente,
    Meilleures salutations,

    The recipe is super good and delicious!! Me, my husband, and the kids loved it 🤩 I substituted few ingredients from what I have in the pantry ( blueberries, butter, and coconut milk ) and it turned out amazing 😉 thank you for sharing your great recipes 🙏🏻❤️

    I loved this recipe !! My husband and kids too 🤩

    I made the strawberry muffins for my daughter’s 40th birthday; she loved them. I made them with a few substitutions;swerve brown sugar and butter. They were amazing! Thank you

  8. 5 stars
    Can I put raw sugar instead of the sweetener that you have in your recipe? I want to try to make them but I don’t want to use other sweetener.

    • Yes sure, use same amount as the recipe is calling, the recipe won’t be keto or low carb anymore but it will work well, Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  9. Can I roll the strawberries in almond flour so they don’t sink to bottom of muffin? Also can I use Swerve brown sugar instead of what is suggested? And would the sugar amount be the same? Thank you Pam

  10. I made these and the fruit sunk to the bottom of batter and they were dry on top and overly moist on the bottom, however they were tasty and not to sweet.

    • If fruits sink to the bottom it is often because they are too big. Make sure you cut small pieces of strawberries, you can also roll them in 1 tablespoon of coconut flour to avoid this issue. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

    Hello! I made these muffins for breakfast this morning and they were flavorful, moist & slightly (perfectly) sweet. I followed the recipe exactly and upon trying to log it into MyFitness Pal app I noticed that there was some discrepancy in the fat/carb/protein levels. It looks like levels are: Calories: 212 / Carbs: 14.8g / Fat: 15.9g / Protein: 8.3g. I then did some calculations outside of the app and it appears to be accurate. I wonder if this varies based on the almond flour that is used? I used Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Almond Flour. Let me know if you have some insight into this. Overall, I would recommend this recipe as it was simple & delicious!

    • Of course, any brand will impact the nutrition panel of any recipes but almond flour wil only impact fat and protein since variety of almonds have a slightly different amount of both. However your value are very similar to mine, the only difference is your total carbs since my fitness pal includes sugar alcohol in the total carbs and I don’t since they are not assimilated by your body. On a keto diet, you must count net carbs, which are total carbs takeaway fiber takeaway sugar alcohol. You don’t mention the fiber or sugar alcohol in your data which are the 2 most important factor to get the net carbs per serve. If you takeaway both from your total carbs I am sure you will get the same amount of net carbs per serve as soon in my recipe. Enjoy, Carine

    These muffins are delicious. It’s hard not to eat just one. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Posted to my Keto Favourites board.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious !
    So nice to find a keto muffin recipe that tastes like normal muffins, without the guilt. I added in almond flakes and a tiny bit of almond essence which makes a nice variety.
    Thank you for this recipe !

  14. My muffins did not come out like yours pictured. I bake all the time and I’m wondering if There’s something I could have done different.

    • Could you give me more details, what do you mean by ‘not like your picture’? happy to help, XOXO Carine

  15. I was wondering if a different sweetener could be used as my daughter doesnt like the ones shown. Are usual sweeteners are coconut sugar, maple syrup and honey as she cant have cane sugar. Thanks 🙂

    • Coconut sugar will work well yes, it is not keto friendly but she loves it go for it ! Enjoy the recipes around here, XOXO Carine

    First time making your strawberry muffins, so delicious, followed it to the letter, dusted the finely chopped Strawberries in a little coconut flour as you suggested. Thank you for sharing, love all your recipes! Wendylou

    • Thanks Wendy for such a lovely message! So happy you love the muffins, Enjoy the recipes around here, XOXO Carine

    hi, i have to say i totally love your recipes. I’m very pleased to have came across your recipes as it has been a life saver for me since i got diagnosed with gestational diabetes nearly everything sweet was out of the question until i came across your website. i have even tried the diabetic birthday cake recipe for my little girls 4th birthday recently and everyone was very impressed even the birthday girl 🙂 i will definitely be trying out more of your recipes 🙂 x

  18. The 1st time I made them I used the wrong amount of almond flour. The bottoms of the muffins were very moist and the muffinwould not come out of the muffin paper. Today i made them again using the correct amount of flour but used a couple spoons of strawberries that I had pureed. I see in previous comments I shouldn’t have done that, had the same problem getting thm out of the muffin papers. Next time I will not vary the recip. After all that being said, they are delicious.

    • It is really recommended to follow my recipes without adapting too much and the best way for you to avoid any bad results that waste your precious ingredients is to write to me 🙂 Send me a comment with your adaptation ideas, I will tell you how it can impact the recipe, I usually reply within 24 hours ! I hope it get sbetter next time following the recipe. Enjoy! XOXO Carine

    • No sorry you can’t sub almond flour flour for coconut flour both have different properties, coconut four is 4 times more water absrobent and required more eggs. Try my coconut flour blueberry muffin recipe to use coconut flour and swap blueberries by strawberries if desired. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

    • Thank you ! To see the recipe in gram simply click on the link ‘metric’ before the ingredients to fully convert the recipe card into grams. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

  19. Hello,
    I am just trying your strawberry keto muffins. I followed the recipe perfectly and the dough is all crumbly. Is 1/3 cup the correct amount of unsweetened almond milk? I have added a lot more almond milk to moisten the dough. Trying to bake them now. I am confused as to why it did not turn out.

    • Hi Lynn, I am sorry to hear that. You should add 1/3 cup almond milk not more or the batter will be very liquid and the muffins won’t cook inside. The batter before baking is dense as you can see on my recipe video but not crumbly. What can make yours crumbly is: small eggs (you need large eggs in all my recipes), almond meal instead of almond flour (almond meal is coarse and leave a crumbly/gritty texture), cold eggs with coconut oil (makes lump and crumble). I hope this helps you, Take care, XOXO Carine.

    • Any milk will work in this recipe. Water should work and heavy cream will be delicious too. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  20. I’d like to use a combination of coconut oil and butter. Should I use soft room temp butter or melted?

      • My muffins came out a bit soggy on the inside. I assume it’s liquid from the strawberries. I used fresh and cooked 26 mins. Any tips to avoid this next time?

        • Hello! That could come from the strawberry juice indeed! I always cut mine in very small pieces and you can sprinkle a teaspooon of coconut flour to coat the strawberries. The fiber in coconut flour will soak the liquid and avoid the release of extra juice that make the muffin too moist. I hope this helps, XOXO Carine.

  21. When I figure the carb count it comes to 26.5g total carbs per muffin. The almond flour alone comes to 8g carbs per muffin. Am I doing something wrong? How did you get 5.6g? I was so excited because I made them and they look amazing and I can’t eat them if they have 26.5g of total carbs. 🙁

    • It seems that you have some issue with your nutrition tracker. The almond flour alone in the whole recipe, so for 12 muffins, bings only 40g net carbs. Or the recipe makes 12 muffins so you have to divide this number 12 to see how much net carbs the almond flour brings to each muffins. If you are only looking at almond flour it will be 3.3g net carbs per muffins from the flour. So I can confirm and reassure you that with ALL ingredients, one muffins has 5.6 g carbs including 1.1 g fiber that you takeaway to get the net carbs. That is why 1 muffin contains only 4.5 g net carbs and you are total safe to have one on your keto journey ! Enjoy the keto recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.

    I loved these SO much! I used Rasberries instead, and slightly less “sugar.” Ialso added a sprinkle of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp ginger powder. SO GOOD!
    A little warning as you are baking them…uh, it’s so yummy, you might go over your carb limit for the day just by testing them and licking the batter off your fingers! 😀 Lol.

    Thank you – I was looking for a good replacement for goodies appearing at work–and I think I’ve found it!

    • Thank YOU for such a lovely feeback! I love the raspberry option, very clever to make those even lower in carbs! Enjoy the recieps on the blog, XOXO Carine.

    Hi Carine,

    I made these strawberry muffins and they are sooo yummy. I reheated one and loaded it up with more butter. I couldn’t stop at one. Hahhaa
    I have to admit that my batch of muffins look awful as the muffin tops didn’t brown evenly. But they do taste really good for a keto muffin.
    Highly recommend to all other fans!

    Best regards

    Hi Carine
    I made the strawberry muffins. I brushed the tops with MCT oil and sprinkled with powdered xylitol for an extra little bit of sweetness. They were wonderfully moist and went down a treat. IHighly recommend them to other readers. Kind Regards, Rosine

    • Of course! The recipe will work perfectly with the same amount of any crystal sweetener including sugar. But it means that recipe won’t be sugar free or keto anymore. Same if you swap almond milk for buttermilk but yes recipe will work ust not be as healthy. I would rather recommend an healthy unrefined sugar if you want to keep those healthy. Coconut sugar will be healthier and low GI. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

  25. 5 stars
    Can these be made egg free? I absolutely loved them and want to make them for my hubby. What egg replacement should I use?

    • 5 stars
      I actually do use flax egg and it comes out delicious! Three tbsp flaxmeal and about a half cup of water, whisk it and let it sit for about 15 mins and whisk once more. My fiance is obsessed and I have to make these once a week now! Great recipe!

    • I didn’t had great success trying an egg replacement in this recipe – my husband is vegan too ! It wasn’t holding together when I used flax egg Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

  26. I substituted the coconut oil for applesauce and I’m assuming that’s where I went wrong because I was left with a crumbly mess. It’s a shame since the ingredients are so expensive so if you read this, don’t try applesauce!

    • Well the recipe doesn’t suggest apple sauce as an oil replacement. You shouldn’t substitute ingredients if they are not suggested or PM me first next time. I love to help and mae sure recipe works. I would have tell you that applesauce is a no go here. Usually my recipes are high fat low carb so the oil is needed and I never recommend fruit puree. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

  27. Hi Carine! These look great but I can’t have nuts. Can I substitute 2% milk for the almond milk & gluten free Cup for Cup flour for the almond flour? Thank you!

    • Hello! You can use any milk of your choice, lite milk, full fat milk or coconut milk. I would recommend you swap almond flour with sunflower seed flour to keep things low carb keto friendly. Gluten free all purpose flour will make the muffins ‘bulky’. I hope you enjoy them, XOXO Carine

  28. 5 stars
    Loved these and so easy to make. I especially like that your recipes all have ingredients that most keto kitchens already have. Blueberries are on sale by me this week, I’m thinking that I’ll try it with them next!

    • Thank you so much for this lovely feedback! I am so excited to try them with blueberries next time too. XOXO Carine.

  29. 5 stars
    These are so easy to make and absolutely delicious! Perfect with a cup of coffee (or tea), and a little dab of whipped cream. These are all ingredients I had on hand, and if you follow the keto lifestyle, you probably have them as well. I’ll be making another batch tomorrow to freeze. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

    • They freeze really well, you will love to have a batch on hand to fix a quick sweet craving. Enjoy the recipes around here. XOXO Carine.

    • Thanks so much ! I am so happy that you enjoyed the muffins and that you found my blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    This recipe is easy for my very first keto bakery. I use the recipe to make the blueberry cake instead of muffins. Surprisingly, the taste is extremely delicious.

    • Thank you SO much for the lovely comment. I never thought the recipe will work as a cake too, amazing idea, thanks for sharing with me. XOXO Carine.

  31. I’m fairly new to the keto cooking/baking & clueless on substitutes. Let’s say I’m 1/2cup short on almond flour& the last thing I want to do is get dressed & go to the store. Do I wait until I buy more or can I use something else to fill that little gap?

    • Argh that is pretty much annoying indeed. There is not many keto flour options for baking. You can try 1/4 cup of coconut flour to substitute the 1/2 cup almond flour missing. It will impact the texture for sure but still be delicious. I hope you have that flour on hand otherwise, sunflower seed flour replace 1:1 ratio. Simply grind sunflower seeds into a blender until a powder form. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

  32. 5 stars
    These are a wonderful summer treat! Easy to make and even easier to eat. LOL! These will satisfy my keto pregnancy cravings for the next few weeks. 🙂

    • Hahah I can’t agree more on the second part, I eat 2 of them while taking pictures for the blog. So yum! Thanks again for trying my keto sweet recipes and good luck withthe end of the pregnancy. XOXO Carine

    Looking forward to trying your keto strawberry muffin recipe. I’m not strictly keto but I am low carb. I do muffins now with mostly almond flour some flaxseed and a little bit of millet I use more eggs than you however I use six and for sweetener I use liquid stevia. Today I made some of those muffins with raspberries and a little bit of coffee Justice for slightly unusual taste. They came out great. Love to hear more about your suggestions and recipes

    • Thanks so much for lovely feedback. I love the addition of coffee! Great idea. Talk to you soon on the blog, XOXO Carine
